The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) will hold its annual fundraising event, Canines & Cocktails, on Thursday, December 12, 2013 at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, FL. Sponsored by The Canine Chronicle, the event recognizes the important contribution dogs make in our lives as companions and celebrates the advancements made in both human and canine health through the One Health Initiative, a global effort to improve both animal and human health through the collaboration of science and health professionals.
“Canines & Cocktails is a wonderful event that brings together members of the dog-loving community who are passionate about canine health,” said Terry T. Warren, CHF CEO and General Counsel. “Through the ongoing commitment of CHF supporters we are making real strides in treatments for orthopedic concerns, oncology, cardiology, and canine specific issues like bloat.”
